Property description

Sunset House rises to a nice height to watch people walking and Port Clyde Harbor humming.   From its southwestward facing dinner deck, the home chef can enjoy cooking up a storm of local foods and fish from a kitchen that features old time cottage ambiance and a large table for guests to join in the camaraderie of summer friendships.
The queen bedroom and twin bedded room across the hall are augmented by 'The Eagle's Nest,' a lofty perch for agile 
climbers two stories above!  A modest shaded lawn to enjoy fresh ocean breezes.  Full sun all day on the ocean facing deck. A Franklin wood stove in living room for cool evening gatherings.  Informal and fun, Sunset House will be in your memory months later.  Many return year after year here.   TV, wi-fi, land line telephone.  Bring your bikes, you will love riding or walking the winding road along the shore where this summer place offers the peace, tranquility and beauty your soul longs for in refreshment.
As part of our rental application we do ask for two references from previous rental companies/agents/homeowners etc.

Long-term renters in our off-season, which is from October 15th through May15th, are responsible for paying all utilities in addition to their lease amounts. We also require background check and references on all long-term guests.

10-minute walk to the village post office and Port Clyde General Store, open daily, specializing in morning coffee and pastries, corn, blueberries, native lobsters, fresh cut meats, all grocery supplies, and great burgers and local lobster rolls.  This is a most pleasant old and proud Maine fishing community with a working waterfront, two churches (Baptist and Advent Christian), served also by its schools, fire department, rescue ambulance, no police (serviced by County Sheriff's Deputy), Daily ferry to and from Monhegan Island, and lots of fishermen.  1/3 of Maine lobsters come from this county:  Knox, named after George Washington's Chief Artillery Officer in the Revolutionary War of 1776.  You can learn about about him on the peninsula, also, and enjoy programs offered all season at Montpelier, the Knox mansion and museum.  The Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland is a nearby must.

Adventurous local and on-the-wharf dining, Wyeth art tours by land and water, Monhegan Island ferry adventures to see Maine seabirds including puffins and American bald Eagles, picnicking at Marshall Point Lighthouse,  and good ice cream are all landmark visitation treats in this authentic coastal Maine village.  No need to dress up and be uncomfortable, or wait in line -- we can coordinate your time here with knowledge and reservation priority.
